Challenge for week2

Monday, February 17, 2014

So I finished my first weeks challenge even though the number on the scale didn't reflect my hard work.

This week my goal is to loose 1lb. And see the number 148 on the scale. I will be more strict with my calories and not pass 1200 cal a day. I will exercise 3 times this week. Skipping the 2 days my kids are off of school.

In today's reading I'm supposed to intentionally eat something that will help me feel better. (a comfort food) preferably one that I really enjoy and have a hard time putting it down. I'm to eliminate any thoughts of guilt or remorse and just enjoy eating it. However, here comes the tricky part... I'm supposed to stop eating it after 2 bites! Reminding myself that my needs have been met and eating more will not increase the healing or feelings of joy you get from eating that particular food. And then I'm supposed to write about my experience.

I did this today with my favorite ice-cream! Recees peanut butter cup.. yum. I ate two small teaspoons, let it melt in my mouth savoring every moment and then drank my water over it and put the rest of the ice cream away. I really enjoyed those two spoons and it was really enough and empowering to just put the rest away! Doing this makes me feel less like I'm limiting foods.. I'm not, I can eat anything I want.. just in the right amounts. And still be healthy and reap the same feelings that my comfort foods offer!

Great exercise.. I recommend it!
